Has a great pour and great color. It's the perfect pilsner. Comes with a strong taste of hops and alcohol that many beers do not. Beat served between cold and room temp. Even better on tap especially if able to have in the Czech republic where it's made. You won't find a better pilsner around.

Poured into a pokal glass. Pours clear golden with a large white head. There are some visible bubbles rising in the glass. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. The aroma is of grainy and sweet malt and grassy hops. The flavors follow the nose. There's mildly sweet and grainy malt balanced by the grassy noble hop flavors. There's some back end hop bitterness, but this is mild. The body is light with moderate carbonaton. The finish is crisp and dry. The beer is very drinkable and very refreshing. This is an excellent beer.

12oz bottle into pilsner glass.

A: Pours a clear pale golden color with a thick but short lived bright white head that slowly faded into nothingness. Some patches of stick lace were left down the glass.
S: Light sweet notes of light malt and honey-like sugars and grains. Crisp and clean smelling.
T: Dry roasted grains, a kiss of honeyesque sweet malt, and a balancing earthy hops in the finish. The finish is peppery and earthy with slightly bitter hops, and the aftertaste is has a touch of minerally yeast.
M: Light crisp body, clean and smooth mouthfeel with scrubbing carbonation and a drying finish. Easy to drink.
O: I hear this beer isn't like it used to be but it’s obviously still very drinkable. I’d put it as average for the style though as I've had many that are better.
